For a while I’ve had a little utility script that will leverage Ghostscript and combine multiple PDF files into a single PDF. This script came about after finding a few really great free textbooks online that were broken up by chapter. This is both annoying to download and annoying to read.
After logging into my VPS for the third time just to stitch some PDF files together, I decided to turn my little script into a little service.
A few hours and a domain registration later, and I have the service available.
It’s available here: PDF Stitcher – Stitch Multiple PDF files into one
It’s super easy to use – paste the URL of a page that has a list of links to PDF files in the box, and press the button. The service will fetch all the linked files and stitch them together.
The source code for this service can also be found on my Github account just in case you want to self host.
